Hughesville locals

By Staff | Jan 31, 2012

Fun Fact For The Week: This week the New England Patriots will travel to the Super Bowl for the 7th time. It will be the 5th time for the New York Giants. The biggest blow out in Super Bowl history was when the 49ers beat the Broncos is Super Bowl XXIV, 55-10 ouch! The closest game was when the Giants beat the Bills 20-19 in Super Bowl XXV when the Bills kicker missed a field goal as time expired again, ouch!

Pet Peeve For The Week: Going to the YMCA and working out is becoming addictive. Could I actually be doing something healthy for myself in 2012? It is a great facility and so convenient. I encourage everyone to take advantage of it.
